Château du Courlat
From the long driveway of Cyprus trees on your approach, this estate inspires peace and tranquility. Nature is present at every turn, with a large lake at the centre of vines, forest and Château.
The palate is dominated by crunchy black fruits and a hint of liquorice, along with a streak of graphite and pencil lead.
How about brasied lamb with giant white beans?
Long ageing partly in oak.
